defense secretary. joining me now is republican senator john barrasso from wyoming. senator, thanks for being here. >> thank you, candy. >> something caught our eye that senator mccain said in explaining the republican -- part of the republican resistance to hagel in which he says it goes back to there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover and said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. is this a revenge vote? mean, this seems -- i understand that people, a lot of republicans who personally don't like chuck hagel but is that a vote against him? >> that's not a reason. the reason is if anyone saw his testimony. it was very unsettling. it was weak and wobbly, and, you know, you want competence and confidence in the person that is going to be secretary of defense, and what we saw was a lot of confusion by this nominee. so what we're doing is

will. joining us is chris hayes. chris, what was that shout out to john mccain and joe lieberman about? that seemed to make john mccain unhappy? >> he did his patented grimace smile. it was a standard cap and trade bill along the framework of what would later be passed by the house of representatives after president and killed in the senate because no republics republicans would support it. john mccain and joe lieberman in three sessions introduced bills to put a cap on carbon and that amount would have gone down year for year. what democrats tried to pass in 2009 and could not get done. it was a reminder to the republicans that there was a remarkable and in my time covering politics, lurch backwards. newt gingrich was haunted by sitting with nancy pelosi endorsing it. john mccain favored cap and trade. all of that has been undone and destroyed as the republican party has put this in this shrinking denial of the political strain. i think the president was trying to point that out and that's why john mccain felt uncomfortable. >> sitting between two democratic senators and wishing he wa

personally and so vigorously, that even john mccain and other critics of haggle came to his defense and he ended up with a 14-11 vote in committee and it will go to the floor now, so he likely will be confirmed, perhaps as soon as thursday. >> those just joining us, we want to bring you up to date on what's happening. the president has left the holding room and has approached the doorway, and you see the cameras getting ready to focus in. and you will hear him introduced by the sergeant at arms, paul irving. >> the president of the united states.3 f1 >> "the washington post" today becomes kind of a once every couple of years event, talks about how coveted the aisle seats are, how firmly protected they are by their occupants. the scramble to get a good seat, meaning face time and camera time with the president, as he comes down the hallway, say nothing of the rest of the leadership. a fixture on the aisle, somebody we've talked about before, eliot engle from the bronx. he is right there. waiting to pounce. there he is. his 25th time. >> oh! >> wow. >> the president went right by eliot en

of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrate that there can be some bipartisan cooperation. we'll see what kind of reaction the president of the united states gets when he utters some of the famous words that he will be saying. there you see, by the way, also behind dennis mcdonough, you see eric holder, the attorney general right there. but we did see susan rice, the ambassador to the unit, john boehner, the speaker, joe biden, the vice president will be presiding over this session. chris cuomo is watching it. as soon as the members of the cabinet come in, the president will be introduced. >> thank you very much. let's come back to our minds over here. you're giving me ideas for what you want to talk about. we hear from the white house that this speech will be effective because the president is doing what he does best, speaking to the people.
